With the proliferation of the NBN over at my place (and probably finally too, I think we were among the last in Sydney to get it available), it now means I can upload more content and certainly at a much faster rate. I had been on ADSL all that time and the change to the NBN has been amazing. So as well as increasing the audio clips available each update, we’re also increasing the video. All videos are 480 x 376 in MP4 format.

a) Channel 10 Promos: Magnum, Perfect Match

Howdy and welcome back!

Yes, I realise this site has been lying dormant the last couple of months. I have had numerous issues to attend to, the latest one being some problems with my blood pressure. But slowly getting back on top of things now, and for someone like me it’s so important to keep busy, because if I don’t, my mind will take me off into all sorts of directions, some good and some bad.

So, welcome back to the site, and in the memory of my wonderful mate Jose Auditore who passed away on July 11th this year, I will continue to do the good work in saving what’s left of Australia’s radio broadcast history, as well as saving other bits ‘n’ pieces I may come across from time to time.

Thankyou for bearing with me. Without any futher adon’t….let’s go!
